That's a very informative site, Michael...thanks for the link.
We have friends in Mississippi who have a home that is sort of built into a hill. The garage is on the lower level, with a deck that opens from the living room above it.
A swarm of bees found an opening in the ceiling tiles of the garage, and built a hive there, between the ceiling and the floor up above. They have big yard full of flowers, and several acres with assorted fruit trees, so the bees really had it made.
Ruth has horrific allergies to all kinds of things, though, including bee stings, so her husband waited until winter time, when the bees were hibernating, and went in with a shop vac and sucked the bees out. (I tried to get him to call the farm extension service and see if some local beekeeper wanted them, but he didn't want to mess with it.
Anyway, after the bees were gone, they collected the honey, strained it out through pantyhose, and put it in canning jars, labeled "Wildflower Honey".
It was heavenly, with hints of roses, lilies and appleblossoms.
